Nokia Lumia 520 happened to be the most popular Windows Phone handset in the world 28 months ago, and it seems that this little device that could continues to maintain a stranglehold on its “reign” even until now, as the most widely used Windows Phone model in the world. Perhaps this is because the Windows Phone platform never really took off in a big way, or folks didn’t bother to upgrade their device to a newer model, who knows? There are many ways in which one will be able to interpret the data as well as the journey to a conclusion, but for now, cross-promotion network AdDuplex are the ones with the numbers concerning Windows Phone handset usage.
It looks as though as of
last week, it was the Lumia 520 that commanded up 12.9% of Windows Phone
models that are being used worldwide at the moment. In second place at
11.7% would be the Microsoft Lumia 535, whereas the Microsoft Lumia 640
carries a 6.3% figure, with the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL being owned 3.3%.
AdDuplex claims that it is the high pricing of the Microsoft Lumia 950
and Microsoft Lumia 950 XL that proved to be the main deterrent for
these two models to make an appearance. What do you think?
